Stylish one bedroom apartment in Downalong with sea views & parking


The location for this property is second to none, located right in the heart of Downalong just a stones throw from Porthgwidden Beach, one of the quaintest beaches in town. The apartment enjoys sweeping views over the bay, stylish interiors and the convenience of a private car parking space.
This apartment is a stylish seaside retreat that is ideal for couples looking for a relaxing getaway. Recently awarded a 5* rating and Gold award by Visit Britain.

Sands Studio takes inspiration from Cornwall’s breathtakingly beautiful sandy beaches whilst also capturing the area’s artistic and creative heritage. Located in Downalong just paces away from Porthgwidden beach and the Island, Sands Studio’s enviable position places its future residents at the heart of picturesque St Ives with its choice of magnificent golden beaches and a vibrant restaurant and art gallery scene.

With sweeping views over St Ives Bay, the look and feel at Sands Studio is far from nautical. Guests will feel the privacy of their own home but all the decor of a five star hotel. Echoing the warmth of the area’s sandy beaches in the choice of furnishings and materials alongside the owner’s love of retro and mid-century design, the apartment offers a bespoke designed kitchen, an elegant en-suite shower room, local artwork, well-chosen books for bedtime and proper blankets!

This stylish coastal retreat is the ideal place from which to relax, unwind and explore all that Cornwall has to offer.

Guests Reviews

SANDS STUDIO. Is tucked away in a quiet location directly behind Porthgwidden Beach. With a wonderful away-from-it-all feel, enhanced by a stunning sea-view through the wall of window that graces the spacious living area, it is situated close to the main attractions of St Ives, including the beautiful harbour to the east and the spectacular Porthmoer surfing beach to the west. Combining comfort with style, we found Sands Studio to be the perfect place to relax and marvel at the changing sea-scape.

SANDS STUDIO. It was such a pleasure to stay in this beautifully designed mid century apartment, right in the heart of St Ives. The apartment has recently been completely refurbished to an extremely high standard, with wonderful attention to detail. The owners run a boutique hotel in St Ives and provide impeccable concierge style service, recommending restaurants and walks and they even provided me with a wonderful breakfast at their hotel. The location couldn't be better and the view from the living area and balcony is just incredible. Staying at Sands is like staying in your own private 5 star hotel. I will absolutely be coming back.

SANDS STUDIO. St Ives is a town that I know and love and it was such a delight to stay in this stunning mid-century apartment. The apartment is newly refurnished with exquisite attention to detail, including lovingly re-upholstered mid-century furniture and high end fixtures and fittings. The lovely, attentive owners provide a wonderful conciege service, recommending restaurants and walks and even providing a delicious breakfast in their hotel in town. The fact the apartment is owned by hoteliers is apparent in the spotless appearence, high quality sheets and towels and the lovely little extra touches such as throws to use while sitting on the balcony and the offer of additional services such as picnic hampers. The apartment is in the heart of St Ives and the views of the sea are uninterupted. I will absolutely be returning to Sands Studio on my next trip to St Ives.
